My Priceless and Precious Treasure

Gold and diamonds are what people crave for,

Beauty and glamour are what the vain seek for,

Power and position are what the greedy fight for,

But true people of God – yearn for the Greatest treasure

On earth and in Heaven –

Our Lord Jesus Christ.

I have that treasure that’s mine for ever.

He’s there behind, beside, above and around me.

Far more priceless than all the gold in the world.

Precious beyond measure, than all the pearls found in oysters.

A treasure that I cannot part with ,

For all the pomp and show in the world.

One that imparts a great peace within,

One Whose presence I feel incessantly

Through joy and pain, thick and thin.

One that never lets me hunger and thirst

As He provides the Bread of Life and Springs of Living water

One that nothing in the world can separate me from.

No depth, nor height, nor width nor breadth—

With a love, glorious and supernal, selfless and unconditional.

One that spreads a strong fragrance in me and lights up my life.

The dark corners of my life are illuminated,

The blemishes, spots and wrinkles are cleansed,

The unenergized and feeble parts are rejuvenated.

This Treasure is for all Eternity

This treasure dwells within me,

Every nook and corner of my heart needs to be filled with this treasure.

The core of my being should be permeated with it.

Every breath that I take should be oxygenated with it.

Even if I gain the whole world, but do not possess this treasure,

My living will be in vain.

I am richly blessed with CHRIST.

I live because He lives,

“MY MOST PRECIOUS AND TREASURED TREASURE.”

Triumph in Trials…

1 Corinthians 10:13

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

Are you feeling down? Do you feel the trials and temptations in your life are too much to bear? Do not worry. It says clearly in His Word that there is no temptation or trial in your life which you cannot handle. He knows exactly how much you can withstand and will never make you feel forsaken. He is the One who formed and created you and knows you inside out. And the trials in your life have been given to you knowing your capabilities. Hence , do not be disheartened and discouraged. Submit your problems to Jesus with the full knowledge that this trial you are going through right now has been given to you to make you draw closer to Him and soon you will come out victorious. There is a triumph to be achieved in every trial that comes your way and you can overcome it by prayer and keeping your faith firm and rooted in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Amen!
